Roasted Cauliflower Steaks

Print

Cauliflower is such a healing food for mental and physical health. Part of the brassica family, this food is rich in fiber and antioxidants which will protect your cells from harmful free radicals and inflammation. We now know inflammation is the number one cause for mental health conditions like anxiety, depression and fatigue. Spiced with turmeric, my go-to anti-stress spice, this is the dish you want to eat when feeling more anxious than usual. Curcumin, its active ingredient, improves mood, decreases stress and changes the corresponding brain chemistry, protecting the hippocampus because stress can deactivate the hippocampus.
